Mugabe and the White African

"An intimate and feature-length documentary, charting one family's extraordinary courage in the face of a relentless campaign of state-sanctioned terror."

I saw this little gem last night and cannot recommend it enough. Emotionally charged and powerful, this film really opened my eyes to the atrocities and injustice that many Zimbabweans deal with on a daily basis. It is a documentary about blatant racism, a corrupt government and a fight for justice. Please watch it.

Here is the film's website. There are links there to the trailers, reviews and also ways you can support the wider distrbution of the film (much of which was shot covertly - the filmmakers risking imprisonment if caught).

After watching it, you will feel, if not with a twinge of guilt, how lucky you are to live in a country such as ours .
